From mangroves to swamps, saltwater to freshwater lagoons, the Palo Verde National Park in Costa Rica has it all! This day trip takes you traveling along the Bebedero River to gaze at exotic animals such as anteaters and crocodiles. You might also spot some howler monkeys, green iguanas and a wide array of local Costa Rican birds.
As you travel along the deep, slow-moving Bebedero River and cross the dry Pacific savannas, there are myriad wild creatures to admire in Guanacaste's phenomenal Palo Verde National Park. The park provides shelter for a great variety of birds, including the American woodstock, the roseate spoonbill, the boat-billed heron, the tiger heron and the tropical kingbird.
Palo Verde National Park is dramatic in its diversity, with mangroves, swamps, lagoons and marshes. There are also deciduous and evergreen forests where the characteristic palo verde, or horse bean, grows.
During your boat trip through the park, your guide will help you become an excellent bird watcher and teach you how to differentiate their calls.
